These boots were made for Eljae

How are your feet in this frosty weather? Are they chilly and frostbitten or toasty warm? El has been experiencing extra toastiness in the feet direction, ever since shoe company Barratts invited her to review their range.

We had heard of Barratts, but somehow the shops have managed to pass us by, even though apparently there is one in the centre of Brighton.

The junior girls section has a few styles with low heels, and lots of flatter heeled boots and shoes which of course are much better for stomping about.

Every girl, young or old, needs a decent pair of stompy boots.

El chose these Biker Boots with a buckle trim. The regular price is £28, but at the time we ordered there was 30% off everything which put them down to under £20.

Right there’s still 30% off everything and free delivery for orders over £30 (don’t know when this is ending), so if you know your size then it definitely pays to order online.

El thought that the boots were completely gorgeous and they are. They’re really lovely. Lovely, lovely completely amazing! Yaaaaay!!! Seriously they look AMAZING!!! And feel super comfy to wear.

They’re manmade (not leather) and the inside of the boots has a cosy fleecy feel. For some reason the design makes El’s feet look smaller than they really are (which freaked El out)!


Our only slight quibble is that delivery wasn’t particularly fast(though to be fair, quicker than promised) – we opted for the standard delivery which promised to arrive in 7 days, but it actually took 6 days. Jae placed the order on the Monday morning and El’s boots arrived on Saturday afternoon. You can pay for faster delivery but it’s quite pricey at £5.50.

Also we noticed that the company doesn’t offer free returns, which many online retailers do. You can still return shoes if you don’t like them, but you’ll have to pay the postage (unless there’s a fault).

But all in all we give a big thumbs (and toes) up to Barratts’ boots. Thank you to Barratts for sending us these boots to review and for saving El from the horror of unfashionable footwear.
